Gilbert Debs & Claudia Chahine
Having collaborated for the past twenty years, Gilbert Debs and Claudia
Chahine share an experimental approach, a passion for the beautiful and
inventive, a desire to preserve nature and the environment – as evidenced
by past works Agoni and Tuvalu – and a commitment to the handmade.
They constantly navigate the boundaries between the brain and the body,
the possible and the impossible, pushing the limits of their craft. From their workshop, they pursue purity, undertaking all stages from the design concept through to the finished product. Whilst Debs brings ingenuity in the search for materials and the invention of new processes, Chahine shapes the spirit of their creative studio through design, rigor, and precision in her artistic choices. They have worked together on furniture, products, and art installations, and have additionally collaborated with other designers, lending their professional expertise both in executing design projects and researching materials.
